Darren has an excellent guide up on how to apply for a blogging job. It’s amazing from the other end the variation you do get from applications for blogging positions. Sure, the blogosphere and blogging are generally informal in their structures and general usage of the English language but this doesn’t mean your application should be totally informal (and by extension done lazily) as well. The rule I would recommend to others: treat applying for a blogging job the same way you would (or should) apply for an offline job. You need to grab the employers attention, you need to be at least a little bit formal, and you should justify your application, for example show examples of your work, talk about what you’d think you’d bring to the position etc….
